Mac OS X has been rewritten from the ground up, and Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard New Features highlights all of the most important and user-relevant aspects of this release. Experienced instructor and lifelong Mac user Garrick Chow introduces current Mac users to the improvements in the latest OS. While not a complete overhaul of the operating system, this update does address a fair number of internal systems and external user features. Garrick explores all of these updates, including enhancements to the Finder and the Dock and a completely revamped QuickTime player. He shows the wealth of improvements to built-in applications like Safari, Preview, iChat, and Mail, and explains the updated 64-bit support within Snow Leopard.
Preview in Snow Leopard, like its predecessors, gives you the ability to add annotations to PDF documents. This lets you collaborate with coworkers by commenting and marking up documents directly on the PDF themselves without worrying about altering the layout of the original document. You can still find the Annotation tools under Tools > Annotate, but this was and still is kind of a cumbersome way to access the tools you will need to draw arrows, or circles, or ovals, or highlight strike-through or underlined text. New to Preview and Snow Leopard is the Annotation toolbar which you can turn on by clicking the Annotate button and you can see that the Annotation toolbar appears at the bottom of the Preview Window.
And this gives you quick access to all the Annotation tools. So now I can select the Oval tool and draw an oval, move it around a little bit and highlight some text. I can add a note. So as you can see it's so much quicker and efficient to use this toolbar than it is to select each Annotation tool from the Tools menu. And you may find yourself using Preview's Annotation tools much more often now.
